this is really terrible.

i simply don't understand the collective punishment mentality that seems to drive so much of the israeli-palestinian conflict. someone on the gaza strip lobs at missile to hit israelis. any israeli, as if that will do anything to advance their cause. meanwhile the israelis blockade gaza, making the entire populace miserable, as if denying people the ability to study in the u.s. (among other things) does anything to make israel any safer. it really is madness.
